I am curious to understand an experience I had recently. If anyone has theories explaining this would be helpful :
I read at a lot of places that the body temperature changes when you sleep, almost always cools down when you sleep. (I am assuming this is because the body is trying to conserve energy, physically thinking, lower temperature would imply lower change in entropy). However, the other day I slept without Turing my heater on and it was very cold. However I woke up with a much higher body temperature. It wasn't the regular fever everyone experiences with weakness and fatigue but just heated body. I wonder if there is any relation between the cold environment and the rise of body temperature - any documented theory in the literature ?
I tried linking it to my fear of std I may have acquired but based on a discussion of this on that forum suggests its not related to STD. So I'm curious to know why this maybe the case?
I've heard people have night sweats - I did not experience any sweating that I can remember. But my body was certainly warmer. Also I think my head was Warner than my feet.
Any one know what's happening ? Is it natural ?
